On April 17 2014, the Washington Post published an article called “Digging up a path to history?”.  During construction at University Mall  logs were unearthed which may have been part of a Civil War era road that stretched between Fairfax Court House and the Fairfax Station train station.  In the article several HFCI members were quoted.  The city’s historic resource staff were able to obtain many of the logs for testing and preservation thanks to the alert eyes of HFCI.
